in the second term. >> do you think that this is also something like a precursor to bill clinton's globalization as well? do you believe it is the operation that the president will use five years from now when he isis trying to figure o the next five yearof his life? >> well, it will be the way ta reagan and roosevelt governed by rally i rallying the american public. there three forces in politics in america, the democrats and the republicans and the public opinion. occasionally the congress will rally against the president which is known to happen quite often. when bush proposed social security reform, congress rally and that was the end of that. and sometimes the president and congress can defy public opinion, but they will pay a price. >> and bill just talked about the legislative branch and the executive branch, but let's talk about the judiciary, because president obama in the second term could have an opportunity to nominate at least one and perhaps two supreme court justices and he has made the mark and nominated two women, and the first latina ever to the high court. let's take a listen

of somalia. hillary clinton is giving a news conference, the peg as to why she is speak. as she was speak, she also spoke a bit about the hostage situation under way at this bp facility in algeria that involves as many as seven americans being held hostage. here's what she said. >> i can say that more brudly what we are seeing in mali and algeria reflects the broader strategic challenge first and foremost for the countries in north africa and for the united states and the broader international community. instability in mali has created the opportunity for a staging base and safe haven for terrorists. we had success as you know in degrading al qaeda and affiliates, leadership and actions, in afghanistan and pakistan. we have seen the great cooperation led by african troops through the un mission that you were just discussing in somalia. let's make no mistake. there is a continuing effort by the terrorists whether they call themselves one name or al qaeda to try to destroy the stability and the peace and security of the people of this region. >> she mentioned al qaeda there. a little bit as

department under presidents, both george w. bush and bill clinton. why do you make these assertions coming back from iran? did you have high-level meetings in which you were privy to information our state department is not privy to? >> well, we met with a range of people. we met with people from the government but students at the university. we were actually invited by the university of tehran. we met with students, professors. we met with a range of people in iran, and what we come back with is a sense that walking in the streets of tehran, going to the university, going into the marketplace, this is not a country that is on the brink of implosion, that sanctions are somehow going to cripple and force it to concede to american or any other demands. and this is something that when we did the research for our book, we found historically, we have seen american so-called iran experts predict literally since the founding of the republic of iran back in 1979, that this political order is on the brink of implosion or regime change. this is something coming back from our most recent trip to iran.
